Manly Beacon Light Show in Death Valley

Post by Death Valley Dazed »

Scale the Manly Beacon to soak in a sunset lighting up The Red Cathedral, Golden Canyon, Zabriskie Point, Twenty Mule Team Canyon, and the Borax Benchmark - September 2018

This is not a casual scamper. It's much more difficult descending than ascending. This is my third time atop Manly Beacon and mother nature did not disappoint. I was very lucky to have the great light and landscape at my feet. Sorry for some of the dust on the lens and some shaky video but I was in a mad rush to the summit in time for the sweet spot of sunset light.

I was also lucky to have a calm evening. If the wind had been gusting on that knife edge summit ridgeline I may not have been able to get these gorgeous shots. I hope that you will enjoy the video as much as I did shooting and editing it.
